THAT is why I am talking to you that is haplessly help-less. God loves you and He has seen your pains. That is why He is willing to give you another opport-unity, which will afford you a better insight of what real life in Christ is all about. As a result of this, you need the super-natural touch of God, so that you would be able to recover from those ill-fated experiences life has brought to your door step.
I can see you coming to Christ today; and as you do, the touch of God will cleanse you from sin. It will convert you into becoming a conqueror. The touch of God will recreate your life and destiny, because His dynamic power is potent enough to make it happen.
The touch of God will rest upon all those who have a request for God today.
Matthew 8:1-2 “When he was come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed him. And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.” The leper sin-gled himself out of the crowd of people.
There a people who shy away from life changing opp-ortunities, when it matters most. They refuse to rec-ognize the need why they must single themselves out from the dark practices of tradition and religion of their ancestors, which ends up attracting divine judgment. Such people turn out to be part of the crowd and love doing those things the multitude enjoy doing, without weighing the underlying consequences of their inherited sinful behaviours.
But the man or woman who determines to come out from the sin infested crowd, gang and occultism, and embraces Jesus as his or her Saviour, will experience the touch of Jesus.
Matthew 8:3 “And Jesus put forth his hand, and touched him, saying, I will; be thou clean. And immediately his leprosy was cleansed.” Jesus will only touch the person who singles himself or herself out for that purpose.
The man was a leper and knew his sickness was incurable until Jesus came to town. He made up his mind to single himself out from the crowd, because he recognized his peculiarity. He was resolute in his desire to meet Jesus, when he observed that the teaming multitude wanted to remain as ordinary spectators in this journey of life.
You are here today. What I say to you, I also say to all who can hear the sound of my voice, you need Jesus in your life. You need Him as your Saviour, who will change it and turn it around for the betterment of your future. You equally need Him as your deliverer. You will receive Him. I said, you will receive Him today as He comes to you.
The climax of this message is the moment the touch of Jesus will come to you. Be decisive and make yourself available for the supernatural touch of God. Do not align yourself with those inactive onlookers who seem to mortgage the destiny of their souls for few minutes of ease, convenience and entertainment. They major in the minor issues because they underestimate the impact the love of God would have on them.
But the leper was not like them and that is the reason he experienced that wonderful transformation. His defining moment during this daunting condition was the expression of the love of Christ on his life. Such love came into effect because he believed in Jesus. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
There are some ignorant people out there with some strange misconceptions. They do not believe that it is the will of God for them to be saved from sin and or to be healed or delivered from their oppressions. But God has revealed His plan for them in the scriptures as a befitting response in 2 Peter 3:9 “, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to rep-entance.”
It is the will of God for everyone to be saved from sin and from the impending judgment it attracts. It is the will of God that your sins be forgiven. Jesus has paid the ultimate price for your freedom and today that freedom has come. You will receive it. I say that you will receive your freedom in Jesus name!
The instant you touch the Lord a dynamic and a spectacular change in your life will take place; and the people who have known you in time past will find it hard to believe that it is you. This is because your charact er traits will experience improvement and you are going to enjoy a life of progress towards what is better than your previous situation.
Notwithstanding, you must understand that when you open your door to sin, it will shatter and paralyze your entire life. Sin has turned many into outlaws. In fact, they have sought for solution to their problems else-where. May be you too, instead of seeking after God for timely intervention, you have gone traditional, scientific, and even gone miserably low into occultism, with the use of talisman to no avail.
